Spin not honesty

Unemployment is now at a nationwide rate of 10.2 percent and overall real numbers exceed 16 percent — the worst in a quarter century, and the trend shows monthly decay in numbers. President Barack Obama’s spin — “We have stopped the free fall and reversed the trend since I have been in office.” What?

Obama states that the stimulus has worked to (save) or create millions of jobs. What? Look at the numbers. If anyone believes this rhetoric I need to know what Kool-Aid they are drinking so I can have some, too.

The Afghanistan war is in limbo, with no decision yet made on the regional command’s recommendation to send more troops. Obama’s spin — not sure more troops is the right way to go, I need to study this more.

My belief is that Obama is not making a decision until he gets the Democratic vote on nationalized health care. Playing politics with our young men’s lives is shameful and shows his real lack of commitment and his inability to make tough decisions. If we don’t want to win this, say so and get those troops home.

The president has a string of broken promises so far, lack of transparency in the political process, encouraged bipartisan support of government, no plan to raise taxes for 95 percent of all Americans, etc. If you want a glimpse of a man’s integrity look at his actions, not his words.
